I have been in therapy for over eighteen years for various mental conditions other then social anxiety. Now the social anxiety seems to be sticking out like a sore thumb. I never leave my apartment anymore, not even to get my mail. If I have to go somewhere like a doctor's appointment someone else has to drive me if I have any chance of wanting to get there. How did it get this bad? I'm so isolated. In addition to that I have half a dozen other mental illnesses to deal with, I have to admit it is consistently crossing my mind to just be finished with it all. How do I begin to turn my life around if I'm even afraid to answer the phone. I'm so depressed!
